This is pretty much the first thing I've ever recorded. I have no clue about mixing, mastering, or how to apply effects to make things sound good. This has no effects applied, no compression, no EQ, no anything, because I don't know how to do that.
And it only took about 4 hours to make this minute and a half song lol.
Advice is appreciated, like how do I make the lead guitar tone sound better?
The original for reference:
sounds good, what DAW are you using? would it not have a number of plugins in whatever channel strip you're using? just start messing with eqs and go from there
